Note: the bottle is cut tightly, so you need to use sharp scissors. Step-by-step process of making a “snowflake candlestick”: Step 1. In the empty bottle from under the hairspray, cut off the upper part with scissors (sprayer - small screwdriver tie with a plastic stick must be removed from the bottle) - this part is no longer needed, you can throw it away.

Step 5. Then, from the remaining cut halves of the bottle, we cut strips of about 3.5 - 4 cm in length (for example, we have a bottle of 16 strips, then you need to cut 8 small strips from the remaining part of the bottle - for the 1st row, then another 8 pieces. for the second row, etc. - depends on the height of the bottle). In our case, we will have 2 rows of 8 small strips, since we cut the bottle into 16 long strips.  Candlestick snowflake

Candlestick ready !! In my opinion, the perfect gift for the New Year or Christmas! And moreover, this candlestick certainly no one will! It only remains to make a gift box and present to a friend. Note: using this technique, you can try to make other items, for example, a glass - a stand for pencils and pens, a candy vase - the volume of the item to be made depends on the size of the bottle used. The larger it is, the larger it is, and the woven pattern becomes even more expressive.
